Abstract

Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in lung cancer patients can provide additional information on patient prognosis and treatment efficacy. Currently, CTCs are isolated in vitro from limited volumes of patient blood samples. To overcome this limitation, an innovative device, Detektor CANCER01 (DC01), was used to isolate CTCs in vivo, directly from the bloodstream of lung cancer patients.
